As we continue to progress in the era of reality television, we often look back at past sitcoms that simply made watching TV a funny and family-friendly event.
The Jamie Foxx Show (1996-2001) was a sitcom that never seemed to disappoint with its storyline. From Jamie (Jamie Foxx) chasing Fancy (Garcelle Beauvais) to Braxton (Christopher B. Duncan) serving as the butt of Jamie’s jokes, its five-year run was an unforgettable one. Eleven years after its end, the cast members have been keeping themselves quite busy.
Take a peak at where they are now!
Jamie has reaped the most success from starring in The Jamie Foxx Show. He took his acting and singing to the next level, dropping three albums and starring as the lead role in many major silver screen films. His talents have landed him a Grammy, an Academy Award and a Golden Globe. His roles in Ray and Dreamgirls led him to gain a high Hollywood profile and become a sought-out actor for lead characters. Currently, Mr. Foxx is gearing up for the release of Tarantino’s Django Unchained.
Garcelle’s name is still buzzing in the streets after all these years. Although her role as Fancy made her famous, the former fashion model continues to act. The dedicated mom of three plays a character on the TNT law drama Franklin & Bash and will be starring in the upcoming film White House set to release in 2013.
Morris has been in the business for almost 50 years. Over the years he has appeared in numerous television shows and films from Saturday Night Live to The Longshots. He continues to stay relevant with his current role as Earl on the CBS comedy 2 Broke Girls.
Duncan’s distinct voice always commanded the attention of the viewer. You can still see him on TV today either playing President Barack Obama on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno or playing the lead role as President William Johnson in the sitcom The First Family.
The stage and film actress has been knee-deep in roles in theatre and on television. Her role in Good Luck Chuck in 2007 gave her the mainstream comeback she needed. She currently plays Mary Lou Wentz on Disney’s Good Luck Charlie.
